  • If you don’t have the open weather api key, you can generate it from here.
   	OpenWeatherApi.initialize("YOUR API KEY", Unit.STANDARD);

Accessing the API:

Open weather api provides you functions to access below information:

  • Get current weather for provided city, geo point or postal code.
  • Get three hourly forecast for city or, geo point.

You can get the required information by passing the required parameters. The information will be received in specific listeners.

Here is the example of getting the three hourly forecast of the weather by city name.

	OpenWeatherApi.getThreeHoursForecast("Landon,uk", new ForecastListener() {
    	public void onResponse(WeatherForecast weatherForecasts) {
        	//Forecast received.
        	//Do someting

    	public void onError(String message) {
        	//Something went wrong.
        	//Display the error message to the user.

Open Weather API Wrapper uses RxJava and Retrofit to handle the network operations.
